  • "Lovely and quiet with a really comfy big bed."

    Ideal for walking to Robin hoods bay .

  • "We loved everything in the cottage."

    Also, it is located in a beautiful area of Yorkshire. Many places of interest to visit nearby - especially Whitby and Goathland. One small point: a non slip mat in the shower may prevent a nasty accident!

    Thank you for your comments . We do provide a bath mat but will consider a non slip mat as an extra Property Owner

  • "The cottage was fabulous, very comfy bed, amazing shower and decent kitchen, a few more pots would have been handy due to the large dishwasher."

    Watching the birds on the feeder from the window was a joy. Enjoyed the walk to Boggle Hole Youth hostel for Tea and cake, yum yum.

  • "One of the best cottages we have stayed in."

    A lovely, clean cottage in a delightful setting with a short walk to -and steep hill back up from - the sea. Extremely comfortable, huge bed, superb power shower, easy covered parking and everything available for a relaxing stay. The surroundings are wonderful - birds, deer etc. and so many accessible walks close by and within a short drive. We would strongly recommend this to others seeking a relaxing holiday deep in the North Yorkshire countryside but within close proximity to delightful places like Whitby, Staithes and the moors. One very minor point only: can we suggest a small welcome pack on arrival, with just enough to make a cup of tea and take a biscuit before settling in, would make everything absolutely ideal! Thank you for an excellent week.

    Thank you so much for your glowing feedback ! Property Owner

  • "Unusual to find so much mis-matched crockery."

    Only 1 large glass & 1 large mug. A couple of plates were chipped which I did not like. 2 new frying pans are needed as everything sticks. However as the utensils were all metal I see how they got so bad. All other pans were fine. As the cottage is so remote it would have been nice to have a welcome pack. Everything worked well and was clean and tidy. Superb bathroom.

    Thank you for your comments. The large glass and mug are simply extras over and above the matching four mugs and glasses. So sorry there were issues with the frying pan had you mentioned it to me when I saw you we could have replaced it immediately as we have extra stock on site. It has now been replaced. We are glad everything else was to your satisfaction. Property Owner

  • "Our second visit and the newly fitted bathroom and kitchen were a lovely surprise."

    Very spacious accommodation for a couple and lovely and warm, whatever the weather. Superb location for walking with amazing views but be prepared for gradients! You can walk to Robin Hood's Bay for a range of meal options via the beach at low tide (check the times as only 3 hours either side of low tide - see guide provided in cottage) or along the cliffs at other times and the Youth Hostel at Boggle Hole offers a range of snacks and meals during the day and the evening. There are many places to visit inland and along the coast - we recommend the "park and ride" for Whitby. We certainly hope to return in the future.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback Property Owner

  • "Mill Cottage was cosy, comfortable, quiet and very well located for walking the coast path or the easier (and cycle-able) Cinder Track."

    Having a car charger available was brilliant (especially in an area where public provision is limited), even though in practice we didn’t feel the need to drive long distances, or to use the car every day. Something of a benchmark cottage for us! Downsides? For some, the remoteness may be an issue - realistically you will need a car to get there and to get provisions etc.

  • "An ideal property with all the facilities you need."

    Great shared laundry room on site. Lovely bathroom just be careful with the generous powerful shower! Smart TV and Netflix a bonus. Huge comfortable bed. A very convenient and quiet location close to the Cleveland Way footpath at Boggle Hole. Good to have under-cover parking on site. Lovely friendly but unobtrusive owners, very approachable, and only too happy to help if needed. Only suggestion would be a starter pack of tea, coffee and milk just to be able to have a drink on arrival. Enjoy!

    ) from the front door. 5 minutes down to Boggle Hole - the YHA offers excellent cakes, snacks and simple meals into the evening. High quality Yorkshire food in shops, pubs and restaurants. Great variety of places to visit with moorland and coast. Recommend the Park and Ride for Whitby as parking is expensive in the town. Hope to return.

  • "Lovely cottage in a super location."

    Very warm and comfortable. Peaceful and restful. The weather could have been kinder to us but we still got out. I would recommend you replace the ancient electric cooker which makes an awful noise when you use it and the rings are difficult to control. Then I think it could be a five star place.

    Thank you for lovely comments! We have checked the cooker and fixed the issue. Property Owner

    There was dust on the rear of the wardrobe door and the shower needs resealing. There's a mismatch of crockery and glasses, but it wouldn't prevent us returning. We had a lovely stay.

    Thank you for your feedback Apologies for the slightly dusty wardrobe door! We will ensure this area is double checked in future. The shower has been resealed on 24th April. Thank you for flagging this. It is all new sealant now. Crockery and Glassware are matching. Property Owner

    Sofas weren’t particularly comfortable, but that is probably just a matter of taste. Some kitchen knives would have been handy for self catering accommodation. We had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend it.

    Hi So sorry you had an issue with knives! We have restocked the kitchen drawers and rechecked all the cutlery for future stays. Please do not hesitate to let us know during any future stays if you require something that is not in the cottage and we will always try our best to accommodate during your stay.

    It was easier when the tide was out and we were able to take the short route across the beach.

  • "We expected a country style cottage and that is exactly what we got; located deep within the Yorkshire countryside it made a very good retreat, with just the song of the birds and a very friendly pheasant to break the silence."

    .. The cottage was furbished very well, clean and extremely comfortable; up-to-date technology ensured that our phones etc had no problem connecting with good reception. We particularly enjoyed the private rustic forecourt that offered off-road under cover parking within easy reach of the front door. Ideal for walkers or just silence seekers; a small walk ensured a visit to the beach. Reasonably the location is suitable for children because it is safe for the children to play, very close to Robin Hoods Bay and a short drive to Whitby, making planning the day easy and effortless. We will revisit Mill Cottage and can highly recommend it.

    Drenched it was but not with sun, and Mill Cottage proved to be the most delightful 'home' to come back to each day. It had everything we needed to be warm, comfortable and sorted, with a laundry, bike-washing and 'parking' facilities. It really was perfect, and probably rescued what might have been a pretty dire time elsewhere: knowing what we would be going back to made getting wet, cold and muddy perfectly acceptable. The remote setting near Boggle Hole is lovely, with Robin Hood's Bay a walk away, and the cottage is cleverly and tastefully put together. We would love to return - in the sun!

About the location


Whitby 6 miles; Scarborough 17 miles.

Robin Hood's Bay, with its narrow cobbled streets and quaint cottages, is one of the most picturesque villages on the English coastline. Situated between Scarborough and Whitby, this charming old fishing village is to be found nestling at the edge of a wide sweeping bay backed by spectacular cliffs and dramatic moorland scenery, and was once home to author Leo Walmsley. All holidaymakers will love the beach and its cliff-top walks, whilst more serious walkers will enjoy the many long distance trails that pass through the Cleveland Way, the Lyke Wake Walk and the Coast to Coast walks which all take in Robin Hood’s Bay. The village amenities are superb, with charming alleyways to explore and plenty of places to rest, relax and take refreshment. A perfect base for enjoying the Yorkshire Coast.
